That God May Be All in All
A Paterology Demonstrating That the Father Is the Initiator of All Divine Activity
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
“‘Paterology’ may be an unfamiliar term to many readers. Here it designates a study of God the Father, as distinct from the Son and the Spirit as Trinitarian persons. I like Rippee’s approach very much, because he goes directly and deeply into the scriptures, which are certainly our only ultimate source for teaching about the Trinity. There are many books on the Trinity today. Some of them disturbingly dismiss the biblical representations as figurative while presenting as literal certain philosophical speculations. The fact that Rippee avoids this approach is a strong recommendation for his book. But a greater recommendation is the comfort one gains from Scripture’s reassurance that our Heavenly Father is the one who initiates everything in Heaven and on Earth.
